December has seen us have a very busy Advent at Holy Nativity. The church has become a constant hive of activity for the whole month! We began with season with The Christmas Fair at which the whole community came together to begin the preparations for Christmas.
We were really pleased to be able to jointly organise the fair with Ash green Primary School. For the last couple of years it hasn’t been possible for people to get together to celebrate with events like this. Jo and I met with Mr Shepherd and we all agreed that we really wanted to ensure that the whole community could have a good time. The best way for us to that was to pool our resources together!
What a fantastic time it was. With more than 100 children seeing Santa, lots of raffle prizes won and cakes eaten, everyone had a fantastic time!
A huge thank you to everyone from Holy Nativity and Ash Green who got involved and made it a day to remember. And a huge thank you to the local businesses who supported us with the donation of raffle prizes. The fair raised £1600 in total which will all go towards the work that Holy Nativity does here in the community.
Thank you for all of your support in 2022! Can’t wait to see what we can do together in 2023!
